I-Got Tech Magnetic Screen Door Review

     My dog loves going outside on the balcony here. He is a huge fan of people and he likes looking out over the balcony at the playground below. He is also an absolute mess when he has a door shut behind him and will have you open and close it over and over. So I find myself constantly getting up and down to open the door to let him in, only to close it and realize he still wants to be outside. HE just doesn't like having the door closed behind him. This lets in all kinds of bugs and causes all kinds of problems, especially if someone is trying to watch television and I have to keep walking in front of them to get the door.
      The Magnetic Screen Door from IGotTech is a lifesaver for this kind of problem with my dog. It would allow him to walk through it back and forth without a door being closed behind him while simultaneously making sure there are no bugs getting in the open door while he is trying to decide where he wants to be.
      Not only is this good for pets it is also great for hands free in-door, out-door transferring of items without leaving your door wide open for bugs. It is also fantastic to allow cool winds through an open door where there is no screen to protect you from the elements and insects.
      One of the best features about the Magnetic Screen Door is how easy it is to install. You just simply remove the backing of the sticky tack velcro and carefully press around the frame of the door and that's it! If you choose you can add more anchors in the form of tacks or nails if you wish. The velcro allows for easy removal, with no gaps when placed and will fits doors up to 34" x 82.
      The 26 heavy duty magnets sewn into the lining will connect every time, leaving no gaps for bugs of any kind to get through.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Nature's Recipe Oven Baked Chewy Treats Review Chewy.com


    Once again Chewy.com has come through and knocked it out of the park with another fantastic treat. I can't get over how many varieties they have that all happen to be good and good for Dexter. These Nature's Recipe Oven baked Chewy Treats are no different.

    These oven baked treats are the perfect size and are a fantastic chewy texture that are small enough that my dog can handle without choking on them. These particular ones are Lamb flavored with Carrots and Apples. They smell like a sweet barbecue which is not offensive to my nose at all which is a huge plus for me! I love that they are made without corn, wheat, or artificial flavors or colours and Dexter loves that they are made with real lamb. 
    The ingredients on the bag aren't shocking to read and that is fantastic. Not to mention that with the size of the bag you are definitely getting your money's worth. He still hasn't made it through the whole bag and it has been nearly a month!
      One thing most people take for granted is the slide to zip closure. As ridiculous as it may seem, I often assume everything now a days should be able to close after you open it for storage but that is not always the case. I don't take those for granted and Dex loves that his treats don't get stale.
       There is nothing I can say that I, or Dex found to be bad about these particular treats and he couldn't be happier with them. That makes them okay in my book and I love that about them.
      If you want to get in on the action check out Chewy to find all kinds of fun stuff from food, to grooming, to flea and tick care for your dog or cat. If you want to learn more, check out their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest orGoogle+ to stay in the loop!
